Ever since Isaac came back from his music tour, Katy has protested bedtime with all that is in her. I dont get it. She used to love bed time. She would cuddle with her blankie and sing herself to sleep. Now she just shrieks and cries as soon as we put her down.
This is really hard to do. I just went in there to read her a story. She hugged and kissed on me as if we hadnt seen each other in weeks. We read the book three times. I would have kept going. I was really enjoying her loving on me. But then, she got all wild with the wet wipes, so I decided to put her back in bed before she thought that it was party time.
Of course, she screamed and cried. She's still screaming and crying right now. Im locked in the bathroom- pretending I dont hear. I wanna cave so bad, but I know that if I do I will only be reinforcing the habit. On the other hand, one hour crying in bed seems so extreme. What should I do?
See why I want to set up a streaming channel of my life? Wouldnt this be fun to watch? You could all watch and make bets on how long I could hold out.
Oh, but I DO have a baby video monitor, and here is where it gets interesting: My channel is interfering with someone else's. Every now and then, their baby's nursery will appear on my screen. Just an hour ago I finally saw the mom. She looked about my age and she was blonde. I have already checked with the people on my street, and nobody has a baby. I have no clue who this family is.
I wonder if they can see Katy crying herself to sleep. What if they think Im a bad mom? Ive never seen their baby crying. Come to think of it, every time he pops into my screen, he's a giggly happy tike. OMG. The things they must be thinking of me...
Katy is crying a lot like the little guy in this video:
The problem is that the wig wont work with her. Maybe I'll try a monkey suit.
Im gonna go get some asprin.
